Pintxo Tasting Tour : Off The Beaten Track (Lunch)
** One of our most popular experiences, ranked in the Top 10 Food Tours in the world by Trip Advisor **
Pintxos in San Sebastián go beyond the bars of the famous Old Town. If you enjoyed our original Pintxo Tasting Tour and are hungry for more, or if you are simply curious to know what lies beyond the borders of La Parte Vieja, our new Off the Beaten Track tour promises an amazing evening. Let our local expert guides take you to their favorite, lesser-known bar counters lined with both classic and avant-garde pintxos.
Our Off the Beaten Track Pintxo Tasting Tour winds its way through the more local neighborhoods of San Sebastián, for a day of eating and drinking unlike any you’ve ever experienced. You will try a variety of pintxos, crafted at the hands of chefs who are rising stars, from a few of the classics to dishes designed to showcase the best of the season. Come thirsty, too, as we’ll be pairing each pintxo with red wines, white wines, and Basque cider.
Our pintxo tasting tour comes highly recommended by the world’s authorities on travel: Conde Nast Traveller, Easy Jet, Vogue, Financial Times and many others. Stylist Magazine says "There’s no better overview of the city’s food scene".
Chef Patricio Fuentes comes from a foodie family with Italian-Basque roots. From a family of 8 children, he grew up with a mother who constantly cooked and a father who insisted on gathering everyone around the table, every day. Patricio got a taste of the travel bug as a near-professional rugby player in South America. After years of traveling through Europe and Scandinavia, he decided to settle in Madrid to dedicate his energy to cuisine. He began to study cooking at the Casa de Campo in Madrid, where some of Basque cooking's most emblematic figures began their journey, from Juan Mari Arzak, Pedro Subijana and more. With the desire to continue learning, he moved to Euskadi and began working with Josu Muguerza at his restaurant Belaustegi, learning the traditional Basque cuisine from the inside out while maintaining his studies in the UPV "Leioa" in Bilbao. "Pato" spends his free time listening to music and spending time with his family."Pato" has a passion for teaching that you have to see to believe....and he's also the man to have on your team for an impromptu rugby match.
